Hello, I'm Jason
I live with my family in the rolling hills of Northeastern Pennsylvania. I'm a web developer by trade, but have broad experience in various business areas. Want to know more about me?
Well, I’m nearly 100% moved in and unpacked. Some of the walls still look bare, but for the most part, I’m moved in. I’ll be posting pictures sometime this week. Next week I’m heading on vacation. When I return, I’ll have 2 hard weeks of wrapping up all loose ends before heading to Redmond to visit the gang at the Microsoft MVP Summit and ASPInsiders Summit. I hope to meet all of the MVPs that I have not yet met and can’t wait to see all my ASPInsider friends again.Read More

I’ve been using IE 7 now for over a week and noticed a few bugs.
- Visiting some web sites that utilize the browscaps.ini file can cause unusual 500 errors for the sites. I’ve seen this while visiting www.skmmenu.com. This has been documented on the skmmenu project board at http://www.gotdotnet.com/workspaces/messageboard/thread.aspx?id=a8ee64df-8f2a-483f-8594-10aaa66988ce&threadid=29bb6250-e618-4b99-b382-942ae04d18d1. It appears that IE 7 has a version listed as 7.0b. The final release will drop the ‘b’.
- IE has always stored the URL history in IE. It still does with IE7 unless you disable it. However, if you use the URL drop-down box and choose URLs, at random (and speed of clicking), you will receive error messages like ‘“www.msn.com” is offline’.
- When using add-ins like the Google Toolbar, when popups are blocked, the browser changes to the second tab.
I’ll be moving in next week and will not be online. I’ll be back online the week of August 14th.Read More
